What Goes Bump in the Night?
Did you know New Orleans is known for celebrating its dead all year long? For some residents of the Big Easy, death is only the beginning.
Perhaps no other American city fits the description of the most haunted city in the country than New Orleans. From its boisterous funeral processions to its above-ground cemeteries, crypts, and tombs to a much-revered history of voodoo culture, it is a city with a reputation for embracing its dead. New Orleans emanates a thrumming energy that some attribute to the presence of restless spirits and long-dead residents who linger in the centuries-old buildings and cobblestone streets of the Crescent City.

"The French Quarter has been lived and died in; human energy has been manifested continuously and freely for 250 years. They may have disappeared along with their proprietors, but they've left behind an aura that infuses the atmosphere."
